Londonderry, NH Lodging, Real Estate, History, Information
Welcome to Londonderry, New Hampshire. The Merrimack Valley town of Londonderry was originally called Nutfield because of the heavy woods located here. Londonderry was settled in 1718. In 1722 it was given the name Londonderry, after the Irish settlement of Scots colonists. The Irish name was originally Derry Calgach, “Calgach” meaning fierce warrior and “Derry” meaning oak woods. Early settlers spread out into surrounding villages, bringing Scottish and Irish names like as Antrim, Derry, and Dunbarton. Londonderry was the second largest town in early colonial times, and Derry and Windham were formed from it. Londonderry is part of Rockingham County New Hampshire.
Today, Londonderry is a thriving community and wonderful place to live. The town is home to five apple orchards. Londonderry orchards include Woodmont, Sunnycrest, Elwood, Moose Hill, and Merrill’s in North Londonderry. Apple growers are a vital part of what makes Londonderry such a special place. Londonderry’s apple growers not only contribute to the local economy but also provide valuable open spaces. Londonderry’s Apple Way, a designated New Hampshire Scenic and Cultural Byway, winds past orchards, old farmhouses, and local landmarks, reminding residents and visitors alike of the heritage of this beautiful Merrimack Valley NH town.
